3 stars Porcupine Tree- Deadwing is their latest release from Atlantic Records. Here, Steven Wilson and Co. continue to explore the heavier, Progressive Metal assault that was so sucessful for them from In Abstenia. Songs like Shallow, Arriving Somewhere But not Here are extremely heavy at parts and Progressive Metal to the core. Shallow is a catchy 4 minute, chord-progression obsessed song and Arriving Somewhere But Not Here is a longer 12 minute song which explores the heavier and lighter parts of Porcupine Tree's arsenal. The guitars, drums and the whole band thrives in this album and this is a good example of Porcupine Tree's music, even though I must say its not the greatest of releases. This is a good solid 3 1/2 star album, but rounded down due to the fact that is just a very average album from a band such as Porcupine Tree. I recommend "In Abstenia" or "Lightbulb Sun" instead.
